James F. Keenan's A History of Catholic Moral Theology in the Twentieth PDF

By James F. Keenan

this can be an ancient survey of twentieth Century Roman Catholic Theological Ethics (also referred to as ethical theology). The thesis is that in simple terms via ancient research do we quite know how the main conservative and detrimental box in Catholic theology first and foremost of the 20 th may perhaps develop into through the tip of the twentieth century the main leading edge one. the 20 th century starts off with ethical manuals being translated into the vernacular. After analyzing the manuals of Thomas Slater and Henry Davis, Keenan then turns to 3 works and a crowning synthesis of innovation all built prior to, in the course of and shortly after the second one international warfare. the 1st through Odon Lottin asks even if ethical theology is sufficiently historic; Fritz Tillmann asks even if it is accurately biblical; and Gerard Gilleman, no matter if it really is properly religious. Bernard Haering integrates those contributions into his legislations of Christ. after all, humans like Gerald Kelly and John Ford within the US are like a couple of moralists in other places, classical gate keepers, censoring innovation. yet with Humanae vitae, and successive encyclicals, bishops and popes reject the course of ethical theologians. whilst, ethical theologians, like Josef Fuchs, ask no matter if the locus of ethical fact is in non-stop, common teachings of the magisterium or within the ethical judgment of the expert sense of right and wrong. of their circulate towards a deeper appreciation in their box as forming consciences, they flip extra deeply to neighborhood adventure the place they proceed their paintings of innovation. each one continent thus supplies upward push to their very own respondents: In Europe they communicate of autonomy and personalism; in Latin the USA, liberation theology; in North the USA, Feminism and Black Catholic theology; and, in Asia and Africa a deep post-colonial interculturatism. on the finish I assert that during its nature, theological ethics is ancient and leading edge, looking ethical fact for the moral sense via seeking to converse crossculturally.
